Student’s writing assignment on ‘snow’ sponsored by Double Stuf Oreos

EAG:

AUGUSTA, Maine – Corporate branding in schools is drawing criticism in Maine, and Gov. Paul LePage recently vetoed a measure to ban brands promoting food and beverages prohibited by Michelle Obama’s federal school food laws.

The debate seems to center on government control over parents and schools, and LePage would rather leave the decision-making to locals, The Bangor Daily News reports.

LePage vetoed LD 985 Tuesday and his decision was later confirmed in the House. The measure sought to outlaw corporate branded school assignments or other ads on campus from companies that sell products that do not comply with the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act, which imposed strict limitations on calories, fat, sugar, sodium, whole grain products and other nutritional elements of school foods.

Maine Public Health Association representative Tina Pettingill used an Oreo-brand school writing assignment as an example of what she believes are “ways marketing gets into the minds and hands of students during the school day without people really noticing,” according to the Daily News.

  1. That would just be mean, allowing those children to look at pictures of food they’re not allowed to have.

  2. I would love oreos more if they’d make em without that creamy mess in the middle. lol.

    Do they?

  3. I like Oreos.

    I like Uh Ohs, too.

    They’re dark on the inside and white on the outside …
    like Rachel Dolezal.

    Next breath:

    “LePage would rather leave the decision-making to locals”

    So which is it, Fartknuckle (Fur’s word … I love it!)? Mooch or local? Can’t have it both ways.

    OOPS! Pardon me, it says he vetoed it. . . never mind. I take the Fartknuckle back.

  5. Article says …”Don’t wanna market junk food to the “captive audience” in school.

    The “captives” are already being spoon fed progressive propaganda, and that includes sexual deviancy presented as normal.

  6. Lepage is my Gov.
    Damn good one too.
    The Bangor Daily News has at least 6 articles, usually editorials each week eviscerating him.
    It’s gotten so bad that when Lepage leaves office after his second term, BDN will probably go out of business with nothing to print.
